Honors Learning Community

The Honors program is known for its commitment to holistic and interactive learning. Located in Spring Hall, the Honors Learning Community adds an extra layer to the learning process by providing a living space where you can study together.

Honors Program

Honors faculty will often spend time in the residence halls facilitating discussions about self, SLU and the St. Louis community. This community also has a sophomore component for students who wish to continue in the community for a second year.

You must be accepted into the Honors program to join this learning community.

Faculty Associate

Scott Berman, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Philosophy, specializes in ancient Greek philosophy and contemporary metaphysics. Berman has published many works on the metaphysical theories of Plato and Aristotle as they relate to the contemporary discussions in metaphysics on the nature of universals and particulars.  

I love the Honors Learning Community because of the support we all give to one another, whether that be in academics or life. Every resident shows interest and concern for one another as well as concern and appreciation for each other’s identities, encouraging one another to do more as an individual and as a community.
